George Douglas

Wednesday 2 December 2020

Newcastle Falcons are saddened to learn of the death of George Douglas.

George was instrumental in establishing mini rugby in Northumberland and at Gosforth in the early 1970s. He was a passionate rugby man who served as the club doctor at Gosforth and then the Falcons from the 1970s into the early part of this century.

He also served as a member of the Newcastle Gosforth Board of Management following the move to Kingston Park in 1990, in which role he was a constant source of sage advice.

His son Stephen was a prominent player at the club, representing England at every level apart from full international, and would have received a professional contract at the Falcons were it not for a serious shoulder injury.

Our thoughts are with George’s family and friends at this difficult time. Rest in peace.
